Little Drummer Boy

Maybe it’s an indication of where I’m at in my relationship with Jesus (I’m coming out of my spiritual desert), but this year, I find myself listening to Christmas carols earlier than in any year previous.

Audio Adrenaline’s version of “Little Drummer Boy” seems to be my favorite so far. Aside from the music itself (which I absolutely love), the lyrics are really speaking to me:

from “Little Drummer Boy”, as performed by Audio Adrenaline
Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum…
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum… Oh yeah!
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum …
That’s fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

Shall I play for you? Oh yeah… Shall I play for you? Oh Yeah! On my drum? On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum…
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum…
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum…
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

Then He smiled at me… Oh yeah! Then Jesus smiled at me! Oh yeah! Me and my drum.

Maybe that’s not an exact transcript (I’m going from memory), but it’s clear why these lyrics have been touching my heart so deeply… they’re right in line with a common theme God’s working on in my life now… offerings.

What do I have that I can offer that would be worthy of the King of Kings? Absolutely nothing. Yet… it’s not what we give that matters, but the heart with which we give. When I give anything to Him wholeheartedly, even something so simple as a song… He smiles upon it, and is pleased.

How awesome is that?

So… what have you offered Jesus today? Have you brought a smile to His face?
